This topic describes how to delete database objects to create additional capacity.

Deleting unused or outdated objects should be a regular part of Delphix Engine administration. This is especially important to prevent low space errors, which can cause the Delphix Engine to stop.  The Delphix Engine holds a maximum of 400 objects.


  1. Log into the Delphix Admin application using delphix_admin credentials.
  2. Select Resources > Capacity.
  3. Select the groups or objects you want to delete.
    As you select items, you will see them added to the Total Capacity of Objects Selected for Deletion.
  4. Click Delete.


If there are dependencies on the SnapShot you will not be able to delete the SnapShot free space; the dependencies rely on the data associated with the SnapShot.
